If it weren't for the rules that stop a fight after a finish, a fighter could decide after a finish to do just the same LnP on his opponent, so LnP is included in a finish while the other way around a finish is not strictly included in LnP. Or mathematically speaking LnP (A) is just a subset of a finish (B):
That makes: finish > LnP
Well LnP is certainly worse then a finish. But its also worse then dominating a opponent and having your way with him. To me LnP means that you really cant hang with this guy so you have to lay on him and pray the fight finishes, since you certainly wont be finishing it...
The overlapping concept is a pretty stupid thing to say when talking about this subject. A for effort and thinking outside the box though. lol
